Rendering-Problem with IDAutomation2D - TTF-Fonts on Firefox on SLES11SP3 and OpenSuse 11.4, Ubuntu Ubuntu 15.10

If we put a 2D-Matrix-Font in our HTML-Code, the "P" isn't rendered correctly as an MatrixCode-Font. Instead it is rendered as an "P" (see attached Screenshot).
The HTML-Code is the following:

<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word"
xmlns:m="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2004/12/omml"

On Window System it is rendered correct (Firefox and Internet Explorer).

By the way: if we manipulate the IDAutomation2D.ttf an insert a little rectangle in the blank "P"-Glyph, the MatrixCode is rendered correctly (apart from that little point that won't bother the scanner).
This would be a possible workaround.
Unfortunately I don't think we are allowed to change the TTF considering the font License?

We use the C/C++ .NET font encoder to produce the String for html.

But the problem isn't the encoder.
If you have a "P" in the String, which means a blank rectangle glyph, the firefox on SLES-Machine renders a "P" instead of the blank rectangle.

We installed the following fonts from the "Data Matrix Font and Encoder Advantage" package on the system:
IDAutomation2D.ttf Version IDAutomation.com 2015 2D Font

And then open the given html code in firefox on this machine.

What IDAutomation font encoder are you using from the Data Matrix Font and Encoder Package?

Hi Ben, thank you, for your answer!
We don't want to create barcodes for the web. Instead we want to produce PDF from html on an SuSe Linux machine. We want to do this with http://wkhtmltopdf.org/ package. This package uses web toolkit to render htmlcode to PDF. But there is the described problem with the "P".
Is it a known bug?

Ben
What application are you attempting to create barcodes? Creating barcodes for the web? if so, how are you encoding the Data Matrix data?

Consider using a web product that generates an image of a barcode instead of a font.
